UHMW Film Tape

UHMW Tape

For applications where a low co-efficient of friction is required and no real temperature is involved the UHMW polyethylene (ultra high molecular weight) tape is ideally suited.

Applications

UHMW tape can be used as an abrasion-resistant, anti-stick, anti-friction surface at temperatures up to 82C.  UHMW tape is frequently used in line chutes and conveyors.  This is often applied to guide rails to reduce noise levels in places such as bottling plants. UHMW tape is also used to replace desk draw bearings to provide silky smooth, friction free drawer movement.  Ideally suited for surfaces where low friction is required in an arduous environment.

Features/Benefits

UHMW tape exhibits excellent abrasion resistance and it has a low coefficient of friction, making it an excellent protector for surfaces or bearings that experience heavy wear. UHMW tape is more economical than PTFE coated tape and benefits from a high tack rubber that adheres to most dry, clean surfaces, firmly anchoring the product in place.
